Mama Elephant Grand Opening Stampede - Day 1!

Today I am so so so happy to announce the grand opening of Mama Elephant!

You should've arrived here from the amazing Jennifer McGuire's blog.

To start from the beginning, go to the Mama Elephant blog HERE.


Mama Elephant is owned and operated by two childhood friends from NYC. (We were 5th grade BFFs :) We are so proud to bring the collaboration of our aesthetics to Mama Elephant! Our stamps are designed with card makers and scrapbookers in mind! Our stamps are carefully curated to provide optimal versatility with a wide variety of styles - cute, whimsical, bold, graphic, and  fun!

I am the co-owner and co-illustrator of this baby! I really hope you enjoy the inspiration and stamps. I know that I tried my hardest to channel my knowledge and experience as a stamper into illustrating the stamps. I think it's super important to have that stamper mentality when in design mode -- so I hope it shows in the little details!

I have called on some of my talented designer friends in the industry to help kick off the festivity with some good old blog hoppin', or as I like to call it - stampede! I am sooo lucky to have these amazing women join me today! (Thank you, again and again and again. My heart feels so full! ♥ )

You've seen my layout on the Mama Elephant blog already. So I thought I'd switched gears and create a quick graphic card with Basic Borders and Good Times.


I love simple, clean lines. Basic Borders consists of 5 essential border/background building stamps. I designed it consciously asking myself: what border stamps would I want to use all the time? And this is the answer. You'll see me using the set a lot. Like, a lot, a lot, lol. It's one of those sets that will always be within reach for finishing touches here and there.

I love the sentiments from Good Times. They're fun and they make me happy! :)

The next stop on the hop is my stamping idol  and dear friend whom I am forever grateful for, Lisa Spangler!  I love pretty much everything she does! I'm sure she's got something wicked cool up her sleeve!
